As we all know, there's a lot of McDonald's in America. About 14,000, to be exact. But remember that good ol' saying, quality over quantity? Don't get us wrong, you know you're going to get a good burger when you walk through those golden arches. But some of the McDonald's in other countries are putting ours to shame.
If there's one thing that people are more crazy about than burgers and fries, it's Nutella. Well, McDonald's in Italy heard that sentiment loud and clear when they created the Sweety con Nutella. It's a burger. Made with Nutella. Sì, we want one and no, they don't contain meat.
If you never heard of poutine, we're sorry for you. Basically, it's all the things you would want - fries, cheese and gravy all combined into a box of carb-loaded goodness. For $3.99 and a ticket to Canada this mash up can be yours, and the Canadians are saying it's good, eh.
Everyone loves a good churro, but good churros can be hard to find. Unless you live in South Korea. Then you can just go grab one from your local McDonald's. You can also get a bulgogi burger, but that's been met with some controversy - they sound delicious, but seem to have caused some food poisoning. That's okay, we'll stick with churros.
In Malaysia for a limited time, you can order a prosperity burger from McDonald's. What's a prosperity burger? It's a beef or chicken patty that's topped with shredded lettuce or chopped onions, and it's made in celebration of the Chinese New Year. It was also available in Singapore, China, and Indonesia. But not America. Come on, America.
Singapore's got one of the highest standards of living in the world. So they're doing that right. But is a veggie crunch burger right? Whatever your opinion, Singapore's doing it. They're catering to the vegan crowd, although warnings on the advertisements do say that it's not for the strictest of vegans, likely because it's cooked in a McDonald's, after all, and breathing the air might not be considered vegan.
So, we could just go buy a Coke and stick in in the fridge. That's how we'd get frozen Coke in America. But in New Zealand, we'd just go through the drive through at McDonald's and we'd get this thirst quenching concoction, all topped off with a dollop of cream. Oh, they also have frozen Fanta lemonade. Step aside, Lord of the Rings, there's a new reason to go to New Zealand.
Where we just have regular — albeit delicious — French fries, McDonald's in Spain get Patatas Deluxe. Which is basically just a fancy way to say seasoned potato wedges, but also looks absolutely amazing. They are called an "alternative to the famous French fries."
You know the apple pie you can get from McDonald's? China has its own version, and it's taro root. You can also get it with purple taro root, which we can imagine would look even crazier than this dessert. And reviewers around the world say you should definitely give it a try.
Of all places, you could find this stir-fry in Austria. For a while, the noodles were a craze in the country, and McDonald's capitalized on that idea. They were only a trend, but we wouldn't be surprised if we saw them popping up again.
"You probably tried dipping Chicken McNuggets in garlic mayo sauce already, but have you tried our new Apricot Sundae yet?" said the advertisement for this frozen treat. We haven't even tried the garlic mayo sauce, because it's not readily available in the U.S. But we'd like to try all these things, Apricot Sundae included. We just have to get ourselves down to Turkey.
By now we know that putting 'Mc' in front of anything makes it from McDonald's. So in Russia, they made the McShrimp. You can get it as a burger, you can get it as a breaded side dish, and you can get it if you don't want to eat beef.
